I haven't yet really learned maven -- getting over that hurdle is  
what kept me from trying 2.2 earlier.
The README just says to do:

   $ mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true -P allblocks install

and I don't know what other profiles are available.

But I just tried it without the "allblocks":

	$ mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true install

and after 'mvn jetty:run' , I can connect to the welcome page
without error. Clicking on the samples link shows a pretty minimal
page with Template Block, AJAX Block, Forms Block and Core samples.

So "allblocks" does seem to make the difference!

BTW: When I tried simply: '$ mvn install'
it ran all of the tests and failed on something at the end,
but scanning back in the output, I mostly saw stack traces for
"...this_file_does_not_exist.txt doesn't exist." , which looks
like an expected result. Somewhere way back was a real failure:

Running org.apache.cocoon.generation.FileGeneratorTestCase
Tests run: 1, Failures: 1, Errors: 0, Skipped: 0, Time elapsed: 0.161  
sec <<< FAILURE!

This is all with newer snapshot: cocoon_20070717162432.tar.gz

( I was about to try the patch referenced in
   but it looks like the snapshot code's cocoon.roles already
   includes those mods. )
